• 5 6/8 is known as an expression, you can't solve it, but you can rearrange and simplify it to look different.

5 6/8 = 5 + (2/2)x(3/4)  ((removing the fraction))

= 5 3/4  <<<< I would answer this since the question was in this form!

Or convert to all fraction 5(4/4) + 3/4 = 23/4 as improper fraction

• There isn't any answer, because 5 6/8 is not any sort of a question.  Just sticking a question mark on the end does not MAKE it a question.

I suggest that you get some lessons in how to compose a sensible question before you embark on anything more serious.
